1. Missing Persons Investigation
Case# 14242515 

The Calgary Police Service continues to investigate the suspicious disappearance of three people and are seeking the public’s help for any information.

At approximately 10 a.m., on Monday, June 30, 2014, police were called to an address in the 100 block of 38A Avenue S.W., by a mother who attended the address to collect her five-year-old son. The son was staying at that location with his grandparents. The child and both grandparents were not at the residence and have not been located since.

Evidence found at the residence suggests the disappearance of all three family members may be suspicious.
Several units from across the Service are involved in the investigation and search for the missing trio but continue to appeal for information from the public.

Since the Amber Alert was issued, police have received numerous calls. Investigators are now working through those, but at this time there does not appear to be any significant leads.

The Forensic Crime Scene Unit returned to the residence on Tuesday, July 1, 2014, to continue the search for any clues that would explain the disappearance. 

Officers have also conducted neighbourhood enquiries, a grid search of the vicinity and interviewed numerous family members and associates of the family.

It has been determined that the family held an Estate Sale at their address over the weekend. Although it is too early to determine if this had any role to play in their disappearance, police would like to hear from anyone who attended the sale.

Investigators are asking anyone who attended an estate sale at the residence in the 100 block of 38A Avenue S.W., over the weekend, June 28 – 29, 2014, to come to the Parkhill Community Centre, Thursday, July 3, 2014. Investigators will be on hand between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m., to speak to anyone who attended the sale.

Investigators are asking anyone who purchased an item at the sale to please bring a photo of that item to the community hall meeting. This will aid the investigation to determine what items were purchased during the sale, compared to what items remain in the home.

The Parkhill Stanley Park Community Hall is located at 4013 Stanley Road S.W.

Nathan’s mom and his younger sibling had been at the residence assisting with the estate sale Sunday afternoon. Nathan’s mom left the residence with her youngest child around 10 p.m., leaving Nathan to have a sleepover with his grandparents.

Nathan O’Brien, 5, is described as Caucasian, approximately 3’ tall, with blond, curly hair, and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing peach-coloured shorts and a striped blue hoodie.

Alvin Cecil LIKNES, 66, is Caucasian, 6’ tall, 200 pounds, with a slim build, and grey/blond hair.

Kathryn Faye LIKNES, 53, is Caucasian, 5’3” tall, 120 pounds, with red/brown hair and green eyes.

2. CPS and RCMP Investigate Shooting Incident

Case #14234975 

The Calgary Police Service, with assistance from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), is investigating a shooting incident around the city’s northern limits.

At approximately 2 a.m., on Wednesday, June, 25, 2014, the RCMP requested assistance from CPS near 11 Street N.E. and Hwy 566 in connection with a man found suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The man, who has been uncooperative with investigators, was found in a rural area with no obvious indication of where or why he was targeted.

It is believed that after the 34 year old was shot, he went to a home just inside the city limits and broke in, and then stole a truck from the property. The homeowner was not in town at the time.

The man then drove across the road, on the north side of Hwy 566, where he was discovered by members of the Airdrie RCMP. He is in stable condition in a local hospital.
Investigators from both the CPS and RCMP are now working together to locate where the man was shot and determine a motive for the crime.

The man is described as being 5’8” tall with a medium build. He was wearing a dark-colored hoodie and smelled strongly of cigarette smoke.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Cst. Chris Martin in the 6 District office at 403-428-6600, or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods:

TEXT: tttTIPS to 274637

Calgarians are urged to take steps to prevent residential break-ins, such as:
·    Ensure all vehicles are locked, with the windows up.
·    Hide or preferably remove all valuables, keys, garage door openers and other property from unattended vehicles.
·    Ensure all home and garage doors, patio doors and windows are secured even when you are home, day or night. This includes second-storey windows.
·    Develop a routine to make sure the garage doors have been closed and secured after a day of gardening or bike riding. Don’t drive away from your home until you’ve seen the garage door close completely. Check all vehicles, doors and windows before turning in for the night.
·    Consider installing home and vehicle alarm systems and vehicle anti-theft devices.
·    Let your neighbours know if they’ve left doors open or vehicles unlocked.
·    Report any suspicious activity to the Calgary Police Service (403) 266-1234. If you believe a crime is in progress, please call 911.

 

2. Door-to-door Scams
Case #14226896 & 14225487
 

The Calgary Police Service is warning citizens following a number of door-to-door scams in southeast Calgary.

Police have received multiple reports about a man going door-to-door and asking for money in the neighborhoods of Douglasglen and Quarry Park between Wednesday, June 18 and Thursday, June 19, 2014. In many cases, the suspect told residents that he had been locked out of his nearby residence and that he needed cash for a locksmith.

In one incident, the suspect asked for a sum of money from an elderly victim and when he opened his wallet, the suspect grabbed a large amount of cash and fled the area.

Police believe the same person may be responsible for several of these incidents.

The suspect is described as Caucasian, 20 to 30 years old, 5’7” to 5’9” tall and 175 lbs. He was seen wearing a multi-coloured baseball hat, black shirt, blue jeans and ‘DC’ shoes.

CPS is reminding Calgarians to be vigilant and to use the following tips to avoid door-to-door scams:
·    Never allow anyone you don’t know into your home. It’s easier to close the door on them before they are inside than it is to get them out of your home once they’re in.
·    Never give cash upfront to someone that you believe to be giving false information.
·    Report any suspicious persons to police by calling (403) 266-1234.

Anyone with information on any of these incidents is asked to call Sgt. Garth Kowalyk of District 8 at 403-428-6800, or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods:
